Bounty hunter Lori Anderson is juggling her job alongside looking after her daughter who is seriously ill. Struggling to make ends meet she takes on a job that for all intents and purposes should have been a straightforward and simple task.

I mean what could go wrong? All she has to do is pick up a fugitive and return him.

The only tiny problem is that the fugitive is her former mentor whom she really does not want to have anything more to do with. But as can be expected, there is more to the job than meets the eye and soon she finds herself fighting more than just a simple pick-up. It is dangerous and out of control. Will she survive?

Deep Down Dead is a wonderfully exciting novel that had me tearing through the pages at speed. On the one hand I wanted to read it as quickly as possible but on the other hand I really did not want it to end. It is not often that this happens.

Steph Broadribb deals with the topical issues of child exploitation and sexual abuse with an intensity and maturity that leaves you gasping and with your heart in your mouth. Alongside the excellent characterisation and a sense of place you have in the novel – a series that is bound to get better and better.

Steph’s debut novel’s main character is a well-drawn, feisty female bounty hunter who is determined but fragile and bloody good at her job. This is no smooth ride. Deep Down Dead gives the reader one hell of an adrenaline rush.
